January 2, 2006
At 1.30 a.m., the Lunawada police file an FIR (CR No. 1 3/2006) with Khanpur Police Station ) against the victim survivors and Shri Rais Khan of the CJP under sections 192, 193, 201, 120(B), 295A and 297 of the IPC. The Sahara Samay News Channel that had not only been present but also relayed the news nationally and internationally were cleverly (or deliberately) not made ‘offenders to alleged offences named in the FIR.’ Interestingly the FIR that has been lodged by a sanitary inspector invokes sections that in normal circumstances requires state government sanction!! Victim survivors who are the aggrieved party having lost their near and dear ones to a massacre and thereafter been denied the dignified right of burial are being blamed by the state of Gujarat and its’ police for hurting religious sentiments. Of whom?
